Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: India

Location: Manavalakurichy

Total Budget: $400,000

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Dear Sir/ Madam,

Greetings !

I am a Rotarian Rev. Joseph Bernard Rosario (known as Dominic ) from the Rotary Club of Kanyakumari, South India. ( District 3212) and also I am a Catholic Priest doing a lot of humanitarian services for the past 26 years through Stephen Charitable Trust. I am running 2 children's Homes for the poor ,marginalized, underprivileged and orphans at Muttom.

In 2010, I constructed a Primary school where there are 1700 children studying now. The children are ranging from age 4 to 13 through Kindergarten to 7th class. Now, I am looking for funds to build a Middle and High school building project worth $ 400,000. It is an English Medium CBSE school, where the national curriculum is followed. Children are trained very well and they can excel in the field of education and get good opportunities to go anywhere in the world to get good jobs. It is indeed a huge project. The main purpose of building this school in a rural area is to impart good and quality education to the poor children who would otherwise go for fishing, if not timely helped.

To build one class room it would cost us $ 10,000. ( We will have a plaque in the class room in your name if you come forward to sponsor a class room.)

I shall send you a copy of the letter of endorsement/Recommendation from our Rotary Club president and Co-ordinator if you wish to have.

I would be extremely happy and thankful to you and to your Organization if you come forward to support us. Any financial assistance to help us build the school and to educate poor children would be highly appreciated.

I reiterate my sincere thanks in anticipation and assure you of our prayers and co-operation. Your generosity will go a long way to support the school project and for the education of poor and marginalized children in the rural area.

Thank you. GOD BLESS YOU.

Looking forward to your positive reply,

Rtn.Dominic (Rev. Joseph Bernard Rosario.)

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
